When Lucas Beardsley blundered into the Qliphothic Forces of the Polyverse, Britain's reality-consensus was drastically disrupted. Everyday causality was never quite the same again... Now Londoners escape into the virtual-reality thrills of Pleasure Centres plc, while Borderland villages embrace an eclectic neo-paganism. Meanwhile Fundamentalist militias - Mo-Boys and Heavy Shepherds - battle for overall control. In the Borderlands, Lucas works desperate magicks to win back his ex-lover Carla. In London traumatised ex-MOD computer wizard Dr Crowe seeks work with Pleasure Centres - which also employs Carla as erotica producer and Borderlands refugee Vivienne, who will be re-invented as an 'artiste'... For Lombard, CEO of Pleasure Centres, has a manic plan to restore the status quo by using Crowe's cyber-skills to manipulate the ancient forces of the Borderlands. However, no-one has reckoned with the emergence of rogue cyber-daemons - the Quantum Brothers - or the horrors of the Feast of Smoke.

“Why didn’t I start writing sooner? Though strongly and repeatedly advised by my college professors, I was too insecure to think I could actually make a living writing stories. I mean, what kind of ridiculous pipedream is that? Now having completed my first series and seeing the wonderful and unexpected response, I have begun to regret that decision. (sigh) Looks like I have a lot of lost time to make up for. Hmmm... if only I had a Second Chance...”
